. >> and romney was saying let me talk, without being incivil about it. >> he was fine, i can only say romney, mr. romney, totally amoral, apolitical sense i thought his performance last night was masterful if not brilliant. >> rose: masterful and brilliant. >> yes. >> where do we go from here? what should we watch for? >> last time around john kerry we talked about, as a coach and sparring partner he did good against scroo w in 2004 election and the second debate of that kerry was vice president's debate in which after the president losing the debate if you will, then dick cheney who is very, blue edwards out of the room like well until this time i don't think we have met before, very established way to put that, you know people like this. you know how you do it, you just say i don't think we met before, like you are a nobody. and he was very good at that, very good and putting them away and i think that turned it back so the debates wouldn't be lethal to the incumbent president, this time, i think joe biden, he has flaws, his establish isn't precise some time but up against a guy child kind of
% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what >> when mr. romney made the 47% comment, that made me shake my head and say like aate low of americans, when you tell americans you are entitled and dependent on the government because of social security and medicare, that showed a great deal of insensitivity. >> brown: pastor stevens also had a greater concern about missed opportunities. >> this shouldn't be an election about voting against the oer guy. this should be an election about voting for the person who is is going to benefit your community. >> brown: you're not seeing that from either party? >> neither party. neither party >> brown: the two parties intending to stir enthusiasm in the weeks before the vote, that might well be a sobering message indeed. >> ifill: you can find more on jeff's trip to north >> ifill: you can find more on jeff's trip to north carolina, including his foray into mixed martial arts on our web site. watch his newsroom conversation with political editor christina bellantoni, plus a behind-the- scenes slideshow, on our politics page. >> woodruff: the ne
've done it before. i'll do it again. gleerp mr. president. >> first of all, i think governor romney's going to have a busy first day, because he's also going to repeal obamacare, which will not be very popular among democrats as you're sitting down with them. but, look, my philosophy has been i will take ideas from anybody, democrat or republican, as long as they're advancing the cause of making middle-class families stronger and giving ladders of opportunity to the middle class. that's how we cut taxes for middle-class families and small businesses. that's how we cut $1 trillion of spending that wasn't advancing that cause. that's how we signed three trade deals into law helping us double our exports and sell more american products around the world. that's how we repealed don't ask, don't tell. that's how we ended the war in iraq as i promised and that's how we're going to wind down the war in afghanistan thasow we went after al qaeda and bin laden. so we've seen progress, even under republican control of the house of representatives. but ultimately, part of being principled, apart
very much in command of the facts last night and had solutions. >> woodruff: indeed, romney appeared to relish the chance to go directly at the president during the debate moderated by the "newshour's" jim lehrer. >> mr. president, you're entitled to your own airplane and your own house, but not your own facts. look, i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i'm going to stop other things. i like pbs, i love big bird. actually like you, too. but i'm not going to... i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for. >> woodruff: for his part, president obama did not bring up romney's now-famous "47-percent" comments, his record at bain capital, or his stances on immigration or abortion. but the candidates did cover a range of other issues, sparring repeatedly over tax cuts. the president singled out a bipartisan analysis that concludes the romney plan would cost $5 trillion over 10 years.
it might be his fault. >> rose: thank you, mr. dickerson. i'll see you tomorrow morning. >> thank you charlie. >> rose: let me bring you back in here. so if you look at what was said tonight, was it primarily that romney was effective in delivering his message and it seems so in contrast to what we have known of him that is in the end the story? >> yes. he was effective because barack obama passed up opportunity after opportunity to really challenge him. and i think he presented effectively but he could have had problems if obama had been sharper. and charlie, i'm not, they're putting out this line already that look the president wanted to be laid back, he didn't want to be confrontational. somebody mentioned earlier that he really has disdain for romney which is true. and he didn't want to show that. well, he overreacted, shall we say charitably because as one of the great men of america today, davey johnson the manager of the washington nationals have said you've got to attack attack attack and i think that's fundamentally true whether it's baseball or debates. >> rose: he also se
